Fillings are commonly used in dentistry to replace missing tooth structure caused by cavities, tooth fractures, or abrasions. They are almost always made up of composite resin and are generally known as 'white fillings'.
One option to improve the cosmetic look of your smile is to replace your metal filings with a tooth-coloured resin material. This is a safe procedure that entails one of our dentists removing the previous filling or decay. The new filling is made from a very hard substance and will withstand the forces in your mouth when you bite and chew over a long period of time. This will allow you to smile without a metallic glint in sight, giving your teeth a more natural appearance overall.
